A few shots of David Bowie as art in the streets. A New Yorker as much as a Brixtoner, Bowie and his wife could be seen on the sidewalks, in shops and restaurants here over the last few decades – and of course his image showed up periodically as art on the streets as well.
Without fumbling too much for words at the news of his death we’ll just say that we at BSA and artists everywhere owe a large debt of gratitude to this man for making new paths for us to walk and encouraging us all to make our own. Our world will never be the same without him.
Celebrate life today because, “These are the Golden Years.”
